 This is a 'Best Of' CD from arguably the best rapper in Christendom. This CD contains well known T Bone classics such as 'Lyrical Assassin' and 'Saved To Da Bone' as well as new tracks such as 'Little Jackie', a duet with CCM star Crystal Lewis. As I thoroughly enjoyed this CD, I'll just highlight my faves. 'Demon Killa' is a beautiful, smooth-vocalled track with rapid rapping that beats secular artists like Busta Rhymes with ease. "Keep On Praising' is a moving story of T Bone's everyday struggles against religious back stabbers and his determination to follow the Lord. 'Throwin' Out The Wicked' is a graphic burst of righteous rage against sin, occultism and demons with the lyrics "If I see a ouija board, ya know I'm gonna kick it/Coz I don't play with sin,yo, I'm throwin' out tha wicked," while 'Lyrical Assassin' has that massive beat, clever rhymes and a "throw ya hands up" feel that hip hop fans will love. This CD is a must for hip hop fans or long term or new fans of T Bone, and in the words of the man himself," It's tha Boney Bone party on back up in ya face."
